MGM, the Once Mighty Lion, May Go On Sale, and the Famous Logo too! 


It's one of the most iconic logos and that, along with MGM and its film library, may go on sale too!

Variety tells us that several sources say they expect that MGM will essentially be auctioned off within the next few weeks.

But wait, it gets confusing. One company could buy the MGM-UA library, while another might purchase the logo, and yet another could buy United Artists. Whew!

"2012" Interview with Chiwetel Ejiofor 


I may not like "2012" that much, but I enjoyed Chiwetel Ejiofor as one of the film's heroes. Here's what I said in my movie review about the actor:

One of my favorite scenes involves actor Chiwetel Ejiofor who plays the president’s chief science advisor. He’s warning his cruise-ship singer father, played by Blu Mankuma, about the imminent disaster. These two great actors are not even shown in a scene together – they’re talking on the phone – but their performances resonate emotionally.


So when I interviewed the actor via satellite, we talked about:

His experience working in "2012"
His character
Working with director Roland Emmerich
Does he believe in 2012?

"2012" Movie Review! It's Wonderfully Messy! 


Like its reported over bloated budget of $260 million, everything about “2012” is huge and expansive. From the film’s length (158 minutes!) to the special effects, and all the way to its believability factor, “2012” is a film of massive proportions.


Different kinds of epic proportions awaits us in the year 2012. According to the film, the apocalypse is near. The Mayan calendar is set to reach the end of its 13th cycle on December 21, 2012 – and nothing follows that date. “2012” tells the story of what’s to come. Read More...

Robert Pattinson Reveals "Breaking Dawn" Plans! 


It's a mystery. When is the fourth "Twilight" installment going to go into production? We all know about the third one, "Eclipse," but not a word about "Breaking Dawn."

(For all "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" news, click here)

Well, it's not a mystery no more, at least for now.

Our friends at Collider spoke to Robert Pattinson about "Breaking Dawn" and he said:

"I think the tentative time for “Breaking Dawn” is fall next year. They may well change that.”

Change as in, the last film may take the "Harry Potter" route and get divided into two films? Then, production will definitely change!

Winona Ryder Joins "Black Swan" Cast for Director Darren Aronofsky 


I'm getting really excited about this supernatural project called "Black Swan." First, I respect Darren Aronofsky as a director. He made Mickey Rourke ("The Wrestler") cool again!

Second, the paranormal angle is intriguing. The film is set in the world of New York City ballet about a ballerina (Natalie Portman) who's competing with a rival dancer. But is the rival a ghost or is Portman's character just having a mental breakdown? Mila Kunis is set to star as Lilly, the mysterious rival dancer.

Now, Winona Ryder is joining the cast as a rival dancer. Barbara Hershey and Vincent Cassel complete the cast.

Fox Searchlight is very close into co-financing and distributing the film which was written by Mark Heyman based on an original screenplay by Andres Heinz.

Production is set to start in New York before the end of the year, and the budget is reported to be between $10 million - $12 million.
